I am quite aware that there were Huguenots in Virginia before Manakin Town.
Which incidentally was an enterprise sanctioned by the Crown, to mollify the concerns of London Merchants who were complaining that the Huguenot refugees were "unfair competition", as they had commercial connections in the "Lowlands" and were very skilled aritsans, tradesmen and weapon makers.
To mollify these troublesome merchants he gave them a 1,000 acre patent, which was claimed on the site of an abandoned village of the Monacan "Indians"
Paul Revere's father, Appolonius Revoire" anglicized his name and passed on his silver smithing trade to his son.
I do not know of any examples of Huguenots changing their names to Farrar, and I have researched this name since 1964. For instance a Ferrier is shoer of horses, and along with Farrier is a surname still in use today.
I've accumulated a rather large data base of Farrar's, and along with their participation in the Farrar DNA project, have been able to narrow down three groups. R-Z93 whose ancestral origin appears to be the old Saxon earldom of Northumbria (Yorkshire, Durham, Northumbria, Berkshire)
Saxon Anglia (east and southern counties of England like Norfolk) their haplogroup is I1 (Saxon/Danish) and Mercia (Midland Counties like Oxfordsire, Gloucestershire, Their haplogroup is R1b1..
The only possible descendants of James River Farrars are all R-Z93 terminal .which itself is an anomaly, as it is Eurasian, and not found anywhere else in western Europe or Britain . It is also Sarmatian/Sychtian.
There are, of course, a couple of outliers, like the E1b descendant of a slave, or some NPE's.
It is, of course, possible, that there are some Farrars who believe that they are of the "Virginia Farrars", and so claim, but haven't or in the case of two that I know of will not test their DNA.
But before I jump into the Ferrier, Feree, Ferran are Farrar pool, I would need to see their lineages, and more importantly their YDNA (not auDNA or atDNA,)
I am aware that the lineage of my ancestor William Farrar (Ferrar) is registered as a Huguenot lineage http://huguenot-manakin.org/manakin/lineages.php but do not understand how or why, since he was not Huguenot, although after the sale of their inheritance in 1727 (subsequently called Farrar's Island), many of them moved up the James to settle along or near the Tuckahoe Creek and near Manakin Town and intermarried with the Huguenots.
My 5th great grandfather married the daughter of a John Sanders and possibly a Huguenot wife, given that they named my 4th gggf Stephen, a popular Huguenot name, but also named two sons Rene and Renard both of which are French..Thus demonstrating a French influence.
Alas I have no evidence of such a marriage as I cannot find any reference to the mother of Elizabeth Sanders, daughter of John Sanders, Elizabeth is mentioned in a deed of 300 acres, bestowed as a gift of love, on my 5th ggf, Richard Farrar by John Sanders of Goochland County, VA.
